Restful holiday at a beautiful lake
Luciano is a helpful host and the villa is in a super setting. The view over the lake and surrounding mountains is lovely. It is a short walk down the hill to the town, peninsula and 'beach' of Orta San Giulio. Lots to explore and a beautiful waterside path which was great as an early morning walk. Ferry to other locations on the lake. There are plenty of mountain trails, we can recommend the one to the Madonna del Sasso (which you can see from the villa).
The station is adjacent but we weren't bothered by the noise. I am a light sleeper but was not disturbed by late trains (they rumble by very slowly).
great house, great view, overall good location but a bit close to the railway line
Luciano was lovely and really helpful. the house is spacious, well furnished to a high standard (the kitchen seems to have every kitchen gadget that was ever made) and the garden is spacious. Do be aware that wifi is limited by download OK for a bit of info browsing but steer clear of video etc.
It's 10-15 mins to town with some nice restaurants and a very relaxed vibe. Also a similar time to walk to the main swimming area - we would recommend the footpath route to town since there is no sidewalk on the road and local drivers seem unaware of the need to actually avoid pedestrians! 2017 was a huge heatwave (>30deg) and with no aircon we did feel it. It also seemed to bring out some vicious mosquitos which did rather ruin eating outside and meant leaving the windows open at night was a problem.
The railway line is literally across the road. Although it's not that busy and trains are slow so not really noisy, for a light sleeper the rumbling trains every couple of hours does wake you up.
Overall, we had a great time and loved the villa.
A lovely house with wonderful views of Lake Orta
A comfortable, well furnished house with a large and private garden and magnificent views to the lake. The only downsides are proximity to the railway and lack of certain essential tourist amenities eg wi-fi, microwave oven, toaster, electric kettle. Luciano is a charming and helpful host.
Huis en tuin top
Huis en tuin helemaal top. Goed ingericht en fijne bedden. Ligging t.o.v. strand en dorp ook goed (beide loopafstand).
Vijfde sterk krijgen ze als het buitenbeubilair iets comfortabeler en uigebreider zou worden.
Al met al een aanrader en goed verblijf!!
We had a perfect time!
The house is located perfectly, within a hughe garden, facing lake Orta. The view is stunning and you can walk easily to the beautiful city of Orta S. Gulio, as well as a very nice beach.
The house is spacious and clean with all amenities, Luciano and Luisa are lovely hosts, taking care of everything.
